Kourtney Hamm latest HTT winner

Kourtney Hamm, first-grade teacher at Lake Ridge Elementary, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teacher’s Teach grant winner.

Hamm is using the grant to help headphones and wireless computer mice for her students to use during class.

“As a first-grade teacher, we have a lot of activities happening simultaneously in the classroom,” Hamm said. “This can make it difficult for children working on their computer or tablet, due to the noise level. This would allow for students to work effectively.”

Northeast Community Credit Union awards $300 every month to a classroom to be utilized for classroom needs, classroom activities, and academic enrichment.  Helping Teachers Teach is open to teachers within Carter, Johnson, Unicoi, Sullivan and Washington counties who are members of Northeast Community Credit Union. Area teachers may become members online or at any NCCU location and can download the grant application on the credit union’s website:  www.BeMyCU.org.
